We will either meet you at check in, or leave the keys for you in a lock box.

If you'd like we'll leave a pot of home made chili on the stove so you can have a meal ready at your arrival (made with the free-range, antibiotic-steroid-hormone-free pork we raise at our farm). We will also provide Costa Rican coffee (from our own, personally imported stash), tea, milk, fruit, whole wheat bread, PB, honey and jellies for your breakfast.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Our stay in Ilse's condo was excellent. It is attractive, comfortable and in a great location for visiting Louisville. It was easy to get around by car.

    The apartment really is lovely - maybe even better than the photos, and they're attractive. On our arrival it was clean and on a seriously hot day the air conditioning was extremely welcome. There was a pot of delicious chili on the stove, the refrigerator was stocked with milk and bread, and there was a bowl of fruit on the table. The kitchen was well appointed for cooking.

    Ilse was easy to work with and easy to contact - responding to our emails in a matter of hours. Our only regret was not being able to meet up with her but perhaps another time.

    Cannot say enough nice things about our experience there. Hope we can do it again.

  • Ilse was a wonderful host. She came by to drop off extra towels and linens on our 2nd day there. We were able to stay in contact with her via phone or email throughout our 9 day stay. She even invited my daughter and I to come out to see her family's farm (which was great, by the way). The space was a little smaller than what we expected based on previous reviews (those with 6 or 8 people staying), but it was a great sized apartment for my husband, daughter, and I. The location was wonderful - just a few minutes drive from downtown (take River Drive when I70 is congested) in a quiet neighborhood. The condo was very clean when we arrived, stocked with coffee, and kitchen amenities. There is no tv in the unit, but a wifi password is provided, so bring your laptop if you want to keep up with your stories. If you need to be in Louisville, I highly recommend contacting Ilse about her condo. You will enjoy your experience with her, and you will have a lovely place to stay.

  • We stayed at Ilse's condo for 5 nights. Our experience there was magnificent. Ilse's condo has three bedrooms. One with a queen size bed, one with two twins and a small room off the second bedroom with a single bed. There were two bathrooms. It was a spacious, beautifully furnished apartment. Ilse had left linens, toiletries and a complete kitchen. She had even left a pot of chili which we devoured. The kitchen is completely equipped. You could satisfy any culinary ambition. The A/C was beautiful. We were comfortable the entire stay.

    The apartment is nicely located. It's an easy drive to major locations in Louisville, and Ilse has a lot of useful literature for getting oriented to the city. Ilse, herself, was worth the trip. She's helpful, friendly and fun to be with. When you travel to a new place, you want the place that you stay at to add to the entire experience. Ilse's apartment exceeded our expectations.

  • My friends and I had a WONDERFUL time at Ilse's apartment! The apartment is ideally located very close to downtown! The apartment itself is super comfortable with multiple bedrooms and every bed was very comfortable. There is a full kitchen and a nice lounge area to relax during our exploration of louisville!
    If we ever get back to Louisville, I will definitely keep Ilses place in mind!

  • My Mom and I stayed at this condo while in town for a wedding. Ilse was a wonderful host. She provided us with everything we needed for a great stay at her condo, including fresh fruit and coffee. The condo was extremely clean and easy to get to. It is only a short drive from downtown Louisville. I would highly recommend it.

    May 2014
  • My family ( Mom and Dad) and I had a blast. This place is beautiful and close to downtown Louisville. I will definitely stay here again. This was my first AirBNB experience, and it went great! She left us food and fruit to eat! She made this process nice and easy.

  • We traveled to Louisville for a combination of business and pleasure, and felt right at home at Ilse's condo. Ilse thought of everything! The home was clean and fully equipped. I can imagine this being a great place for larger groups.

    April 2014
  • My group and I loved staying here! The place comfortably slept 6, and it was in a great location. Just a short cab ride away from the Bardstown Road area, my group and I were able to have a convenient, clean, and quiet base for exploring Louisville .

  • What a great place to stay in Louisville. The space was perfect for our one night stay with 5 of us all having a comfy bed to sleep in and a super living room and kitchen to cook, eat, and even have a small baby shower for my daughter.

    Would definitely do it again.

    February 2014
  • Ilse started our visit with a pot of fantastic chili and things just got better from there! The condo is cozy and comfortable everything we needed was provided. The beds where so great it was tough to get up and get going. Louisville was a wonderful surprise, what a great town! I would fully recommend Ilse's condo!
    One thought, add the name of the complex to your directions, our GPS failed us and we where lost for a minute.
